My daughter just recently finished her high school track season and was complaining of excessive fatigue. She ran fairly well, improving steadily thoughout the season, and even ran a lifetime best in her last 1600.
Her coach advised having her iron tested and the only info we received from the clinic was that her iron was actually high!
There are numerous abbreviations on the page we were given of the test results. These all mean nothing to me. Next to the RDW 12.5, the doctor penciled in (iron) and that was the only note on the page.
Can someone advise what else to look for on this blood test result page, and/or explain what RDW is and how high 12.5 is??
